Latest News

New HS2 Information

New information was released at a recent presentation by HS2.

Approaching the Magpie buildings along Banbury Road from Bulls Lane, the road at the first sharp road junction leading back to the B4525 towards Marston (crossing the B4525), is called the Sulgrave Road.This road will be a material feed for construction traffic to and from a works compound for the short distance to the B4525. The B4525 will be a material construction route both north (A43) and south (M40 junction 11). More »

The works compound will be between the Banbury Road and the Sulgrave Road near to where the model airplane club operated. It will provide offices and parking for up to 250 vehicles. An additional problem is that HS2 are now designating this site for a concrete batch plant, preparing concrete for use along the route. It will give an industrial feel to the location.

It will be necessary to close the B4525 near Greatworth and therefore HS2 are proposing a temporary public road named the 'Greatworth T' taking B4525 traffic away from near Greatworth Park to the Sulgrave Road near the east side of 'our' works compound. Traffic can then drop back to the B4525. » Less

Community Bus Service

Community Bus Service

The parish council is pleased to advise that a weekly bus service to Banbury is now in operation. The Thursday service is provided by Ability Northants cic. (South Northants Council has provided a grant to the parish council to help fund the start of the service.)

It is necessary to register with Ability Northants, with no registration fee arising for the basic service, and then pre-book journeys. Maurice Cole has a supply of registration forms. Ability can also be contacted by phone at 07799 522097 to register and their website is www.abilitycic.org.uk More »

The service departs from Eydon, picking up at Culworth before coming to Thorpe. The Thorpe pick-up is scheduled for approximately 10.00am outside the Three Conies unless door-to-door Gold service registration has been effected. The bus is scheduled to arrive at Banbury bus station at 10.20am and will depart from there (opposite Wilko) at 12.30pm. If booked passengers do not have a bus pass, a standard fare will arise.
